Some stuff to Ponder......

Tomorrow we go into clinic and I deeply nervous about that visit, only because there has been little to no improvement in David's attitude this week. I know the team are working on a plan together and I am anxious to see what they come up with. Then on Friday he has his therapist appt and she has asked that I come with him as well, this came about after she talked to the nurse and found out that David wasn't being honest in his sessions with her. So we have an emotional 2 days ahead of us, and I am asking for some big prayers here! Here is what we need as a family in regards to prayer:

  • That David really listens to the doctor and other staff and is lead to really change his behavior and attitude.
  • That his heart would soften to the fact that we are all just trying to help him, not nag him and be on his case all the time.
  • That the Lord will give David the strength to make these changes.
  • That David can really be honest and let go with the therapist and be open to her suggestions.
  • That he will start getting on his knees and asking the Lord for help through this and ask for the desire to change.
  • Please pray for my husband and other children that they can stay strong just a little bit longer.
  • Pray for me that I will continue to have a joyous heart even though it is some days really hard to be joyful for two of us.
I really appreciate everything, and I know that one day David will too. The next days will provide a lot of information and then this weekend the family comes to celebrate Mothers Day with me. I pray that it will be a joyous occasion and David will see how we all need to be together and not living apart.


  1. I can't really say honestly that I know what you are going threw, but my heart goes out to you and I hope David realizes what a SPECIAL MOM/PERSON YOU ARE !!!!!!! You are living a parents worst nightmare. To see your son in 4 different life threading situations is more than any person should go threw. I know in difficult times it hard to keep going on and keeping the faith, but for what ever reason God has put this in your path, and he knows you would be able to handle it. Keep your faith and I hope David realizes this. I'm here for you if you ever need to vent. I'd like to send you both another care package but not sure where to And, I have not been able to write you often, but I always read your bloggs. AND ALWAYS HAVE YOUR WHOLE FAMILY IN PRAYER !!!!!!!!!!!

    With my sincere heart,

  2. Please know that we (navy moms) read the blog daily... We have been praying and holding you in our thoughts. What a special gift David and his loved ones have been given... We are storming the heavens that you will rise up to the challenge to embrace the potential of life and love and adventures that every day brings us. This is a battle station that not many of us can imagine... come on sailor! Show us the way!
